Four Ideas for Mother’s Day
Freight House Farmers Market Loves MOMs
There are lots of great ideas for Mother’s Day at your local farmers market if you just look around. Some of them come in cute little jars and wrappers. Other gifts are best experienced! Here are some gift ideas found at The Freight House Farmers Market:
1. Cook Mom a meal
Nothing quite says “Thank you” like a home-cooked meal made from fresh, local ingredients. Served as breakfast in bed, or family-style with all the kids gathered around, as long as you clean up afterward, Mom is sure to be impressed with this idea. Try: Sweet & Savory Baked French Toast made with croissants from the Swiss Baker, or an Asparagus Goat Cheese Frittata.
2. Plant Mom a garden
There are all kinds of ways to improve a landscape through gardening, but you’ll find so much more than florals at the farmers market this time of year. You’ll also find herbs and edible plants as well. Consider the space you must work with, then visit the market this Saturday morning and ask for advice from any of our amazing growers. Whether you decide on a back-porch container garden of herbs or just a few bright floral accents, you’re giving a gift that can be enjoyed time and again.
3. FHFM Gift Certificate. Let Mom shop for herself
Visit the market info table inside to purchase Gift Certificates. Give Mom the freedom to shop at her leisure. The FHFM gift certificates can be spent with any vendor at The Freight House Farmers Market. They do not expire. Want bonus brownie points? Grab mom a fun kitschy T-Shirt to wear when she is shopping the market!
4. Experience the Freight House Farmers Market with Mom
Enjoy a nice, sunny, Saturday morning at FHFM, start your day sampling jams and wine, and pick out some new goodies together. Sip a coffee drink from Deb’s Daily Grind or Four Daughter’s coffee. Gather ingredients from market vendors and plan a meal you can cook together. Once your market shopping is done, treat mom to something delicious from one of our food trucks.
Remember, “it’s the thought that counts” absolutely applies on Mother’s Day. Take the time to consider what your Mom likes and what makes her unique. It’s a safe bet you’ll find something that will make her smile right here at your local farmers market – even if it’s just a day spent together.
